A day at the dental surgery

Dear Readers,

I finished creating a practice for my Truffle family and immediately wrote a story. Enjoy! :)


Excited Victoria and Eustace Barrington Truffle entered their dental surgery.

Finally they could open their practice. The paperwork was done and the man from the health authority had given his ok.
It was a big change for Marigold Creek, who hadn't any health care, beside a little mysterious pharmacy in the forest, before.

While Victoria checked all machines, Eustace looked at their sign.

Everything looked good - no mistakes, a nice design. Eustace was pleased.

He was even more pleased at this moment, because Albus Bamboo, the owner of the candy cart arrived.

"Good morning Mr. Truffle!", he said, "I have your special bonbons!"
"Wonderful!", Eustace glanced all over his face, "You are great in time."

"Of course, it was very important for me... And also it was a special delivery."

At this moment Victoria walked outside, carrying a bowl, "Eustace, you forgot something!", she laughed, then she said, "Good morning Albus!"
"Good morning, Victoria. You look beautiful in white!"
The wildboar lady grinned, "Ah, thank you! I wished the patients would think that too. But they often fear me..."
"They don't fear you, darling!", Eustace said, "They just fear our job. Dentists seem to be very scary for many people."

Amused Albus shook his head, "Don't worry, nobody will fear you here! Let me show you the special bonbons!"
"Of course! I can't wait to see... and taste them."

The wildboar couple took a closer look at all the delicious sweets. Albus opened a drawer, "Here they are. I got them in two different flavours: blueberry and rasperry. They are guaranteed sugar free, but taste as sweet as normal bonbons, because of this special sugar flower Cassandra Maces have found."

"Wow! It's an amazing found!", Victoria went to the panda man, who filled their bowl with bonbons, "It's perfect for our practice! We can reward the little ones after their visit and nobody has to fear that the sugar will harm their teeth!"
"It's a great idea for your practice!", complimented Albus, "I'm planning to get more of the sugar flowers, so I can also make more sugar free sweets."

Meanwhile Eustace got himself a lolly - he loved sweets and he just couldn't resist the strawberry smell.

Interested he walked around the corner and detected a cow lady and her three children.

"Good morning!", he greeted friendly.
The cow smiled, "Good morning! I see, we are already on the right place! Here's the doctor!"
Happy Eustace nodded, "You want to visit our dental surgery?"
"Yes. It's time for the children's check-up!"

"Great, please come in!", Eustace guided the family to the practice.
After Victoria said her goodbye to Albus, she immediately welcomed the Buttercups and gathered the families datas.

"Today just for the children, my husband and I will come next week, if this is okay...", Daisy said.

"Of course. Should we make an appoinment?"
"That would be great. Maybe on Friday?"
Victoria nodded, "At 10 o'clock?"
"Perfect!", Daisy smiled.

While the two women were talking, little Elizabeth looked to Eustace Barrington, who was very impressive with his huge trunks.

"Hello, little lady. What's your name?"
"Elizabeth.", she said shyly.
"That is a pretty name! I'm Eustace. Nice to meet you!"

"I fear my little ones are all a bit afraid today...", Daisy explained, "It's their first time. But I already told them, that nothing bad will happen. I took good care of their teeth."

Eustace smiled and turned to the children, "Don't worry, I promise you your mum was right. I'm sure you have great teeth and I just have to look at them."
"Really? Just looking?", Paddock asked.

"Okay, than I will be the first!", brave the young boy took a seat on the dentist chair. 
"You're Paddock, right?"

Eustace took the little mirror, "Ok, Paddock. See, with this I can see all parts of your teeth and check if they're healthy."

"But you don't have to drill, right?"
"I don't think so.", said Eustace calming, "Please open your mouth, than we will know."

Fastly the doctor checked all teeth, "Perfect! There's no hole, no staining. Your teeth are very healthy Paddock!"

Happily the boy jumped from the seat, "Thank you Doctor!"
"My pleasure. But it is your deserts. If you will always take good care of your teeth, like now, you will never have to fear about drilling."
"I promise to brush them every day!", grinned Paddock.

"Great!", Victoria smiled and showed the boy their new bonbons, "Please take one! Those are special sweets."
"Thank you!", Paddock decided to get himself a rasperry bonbon, while his sister Anabell now got her check-up.

As well as her brother her teeth were fantastic and doctor Truffle complimented her a lot.

Proud Anabell got herself also a bonbon. Together with her brother she waited for her sister.

But Elizabeth still was afraid of the check-up.

"Nothing will happen my sweetheart.", her mother said, "Paddock and Anabell are allright, you see?"

Her two siblings were talking with Victoria, how showed them how to brush the teeth in the best way.

"But...", Elizabeth said frightened, "It c... can hurt!"
Daisy shook her head, "No, darling. Doctor Truffle will be very careful."

Eustace nodded, "I promise!" He handed over the mirror, so she could look at it, "See there's no sharp edge. I promise it won't hurt and it will be over in a second!"

"Okay...", brave Elizabeth gave him back the mirror and took a seat.

As promised the check-up was done in a few seconds and little Elizabeth Buttercup was over the moon with joy.

Her teeth were healthy and she had survived her first dentist visit.
Excited she took her special bonbon (Eustace helped her).

Daisy was assuaged about their first visit too: "Thank you so much for your wonderful treatment! I really appreciate that. You have taken their fear."

"It was our pleasure", Victoria said, but smiled proudly, "We are so happy that we could finally open our practice!"
Daisy agreed, "I can imagine! And it was a wonderful decision to open it here. A doctor was urgent! Now we just need a general doctor."

The wildboars accompanied the cows out.
"I've heard that Ichabod Macavity will move to here with his family. I know him from University.", considered Eustace, "And he is a general doctor... So I guess there will be another practice soon."

Amazed Daisy clapped hands, "Oh, wonderful! I must tell my mother immediately. She always have to drive to Pumpkinvilles - just to get a receipt for her pills."
"That is annoying - I can imagine.", Victoria answered sympathetically.
"It is... And those people there..."
"Pumpkinvilles is an unfriendly city.", the two doctors agreed - they also had no good memories to that city...

Daisy and her children said their goodbyes and went home.

Happily Eustace kissed his wife, "I'm so glad they were pleased with our practice!"
"Me too, darling."

Soon two other patients found their way into Marigolds Creek dental surgery: Pete Petite, who also wanted to get a check-up and Mrs. Cassandra Maces, Cecil's mum.

While Victoria checked Pete's teeth...

...Eustace took care of Mrs. Maces.

"It is horrible!", desperately Cassandra shook her head, "I got stucked on a root, while I was searching for herbes... And I directly fell on my mouth. I fear one of my teeth is broken!"

"Oh dear, that wasn't a nice trip.", Eustace sighed, "I will take a look first, but I fear we have to x-ray you, Mrs. Maces."
"Oh no..."
The doctor looked carefully, but like he thought, Cassandra had to be x-rayed.

"In my whole life I had never falling over a root. I just can't find an explination why I fell.", the mouse lady said, while Eustace checked the x-ray machine.
"Maybe you were thinking about something and didn't watch your feet."
"That must have been it...", Cassandra sighed loudly, "Or that tee I made this morning. I fear one of those mushrooms was the wrong one... That always happens, when I don't wear my glasses."
Eustace lifted his brows, "Tee with mushrooms?"
"It's a special vitality tee, I also sell it in my pharmacy. You must visit me one day."
"I promise, we will.", the doctor smiled, but hoped that Cassandra wouldn't forgot her glasses very often, "Thanks to you we can serve those wonderful sugar free bonbons."

After the x-raying, the worst fears of Cassandra came true: one of her back teeth was broken - to the root.
"I'm so sorry, Mrs. Maces, but we have to operate immediately."
"That is horrible!", Cassandra almost cried. Caring Eustace patted her shoulder, "I promise you, it will be a short operation."

Victoria stepped by- after she had said her goodbyes to Pete, she had listend the talk of her husband.
"Don't worry Mrs. Maces, like my husband said, it's a short op and we even don't need general anaesthesia. Unless you want one."
"God, no!", Cassandra shivered, "I hate general anaesthesia. Good that we don't need it."
Victoria nodded, "I totally understand that."

With a heavy heart the mouse lady followed the two doctors to the dentist's chair and the operation started.

But like the Truffles promised, the operation was soon over and Cassandra could relax in the little sick room.

"How are you feeling, Mrs. Maces?", Victoria asked.
"Quiete good, I think.", Cassandra answered, "It wasn't painful at all."
"That is good. You will have some toothache the next days, but it will be over soon."
Cassandra nodded, "That is okay, I have good herbes at home, I will make me a warm wrapper and have some camilla mouthwash."
Pleased the doctor agreed, "This is the right way! I promise, you will be soon healthy again."

After half an hour Cassandra was allowed to go home. Victoria helped her with the hat, "Please be careful, Mrs. Maces."
She giggled, "I will. And I will come in two days to let the wounds check."
"Perfect, then we'll see us in two days!"

Cassandra said goodbye, while Mrs. Hawthorne entered the practice. 

"A wonderful day to you Mrs. Hawthorne! How could we help you?"

The first day of the dental surgery was filled with patients, who were all very happy to get their teeth checked.
Eustace Barrington and Victoria were exhausted, but over the moon. They felt at home in Marigold Creek.
